I have a lot to thank Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian West for, but the—ahem—biggest thing of all? How I’m now able to embrace my big bum. Before the song “Bootylicious” came out, I felt self-conscious about having a curvy bottom. Look, I’m not saying Bey had the power to change my feelings overnight, but when I thought about how J.Lo and KKW were also helping change society’s view of butts for the better, I started to change mine. In part, they made me feel like my big butt was something to be embraced, not embarrassed about.

However, even if you’re blessed with a fuller butt, there are still fashion hurdles to jump. For example, something that fits your bottom might not fit the rest of you the same. But the good thing is that there are plenty of ways to dress your body type that will flatter and flaunt your shape.
